Some exciting news in the world of streaming content!
Netflix Original ‘House of Cards’ received nine Emmy nominations including Outstanding Lead Actor & Actress in a Drama, Outstanding Drama Series and Outstanding Director, among others.
And don’t worry, television’s favorite dysfunctional family received three Emmy nods, Outstanding Lead Actor in a Comedy, Outstanding Single-Camera Picture Editing and Outstanding Music Composition (it really was brilliant, wasn’t it?).
We think this is huge news for what Netflix is trying to accomplish; it appears even the Netflix top brass was pleasantly surprised:
Sarandos: “The # of awards this morning  was sort of a shock for everybody. We didn’t plan a big enough party.”
